Tell us about your career so far?
After leaving University in Leeds I didn’t really have a plan. I studied Sport and Business Management then worked in an estate agent for a couple of years before spending a year travelling the world – which I’d recommend to everyone!

I then had the opportunity to join GCS where I have now worked for 5 years. I haven’t looked back, I love working within the recruitment industry and especially like working with the people within our specialist sectors across construction and merchants.

Why did you join GCS
I was looking for a new role and I was put in touch with Mike Parry, Managing Director at GCS. He sold me the dream of working in recruitment and helping find people new jobs! I was keen for a new challenge and after learning more about recruitment I realised there would never be a dull day.

After speaking with Mike I knew that GCS would be the right place for me to develop and be part of a growing business.

What are your main responsibilities at GCS?
Over the years my role has changed. Originally, my job was to source & screen candidates for the vacant roles briefed into GCS from clients. Building and maintaining good relationships with candidates is important given the niche sector and it’s what I enjoy most about the job. It’s always a good day when you can tell someone they have been successful in securing a new role!

In regard to sectors, I specialise within Builders Merchants and Equipment Hire companies and predominantly recruit for sales, management and engineering roles.

What kind of roles are you recruiting for?
Given the recovery and fast movement in the market right now, it’s no surprise many companies are investing in new talent within their sales teams. We have a number of internal sales, account management and business development roles available across the country at all levels.

It’s a candidate market right now so if you are looking to move jobs, please get in touch. There’s a lot of demand for talent within the sectors at the moment so now is the time to secure the new job and salary package you might be looking for.

What’s the best thing about working at GCS? 
GCS is also a really nice place to work – we’re given the trust and independence to manage our own days but help and support is always there when needed.

The best thing about my role securing new jobs for people! Being able to find the right person for our clients’ needs is important so it is always a great feeling when this happens.

What do you get up to outside of work?
Sport pretty much takes over outside of work however my girlfriend, Maisie and I are expecting a baby later in year which we are very pleased and excited about! At the moment, I play rugby at Wilmslow Wolves and try my hand at golf occasionally! Mike and I play tennis together too which can get quite competitive but I usually win!
